|Eddie The Rat - Drop Me Off In Denpasar [csr035] - Eddie The Rat|
Drop Me Off In Denpasar started out as a bunch of piano exercises I wrote for myself to develop my finger independence for piano. The idea was to have each finger play a different rhythm separately as a drummers arms and legs do between kick, snare, cymbal, etcAs I became more comfortable with them, I slowly started playing the patterns together and it became a piece of music rather than (hopefully) just "finger-wanking." The title references the capital of Bali, where I was soon to be leaving t...

|Eddie The Rat - Lip-synching At Zero-Gravity [csr011] - Eddie The Rat|
Another piece of the Ongoing Construct, this episode from the file of Eddie the Rat finds Pete Martin and friends in a most convivial mood. Because, in actuality, this stuff is surprisingly adrift. That's not a bad thing; I kinda like meandering now and again. And I really like where these pieces wander. Whenever I think an idea has been exhausted, I'm always pleasantly surprised by new insight. This is the sort of abstract experimental album that might well appeal to a more mainstream crowd...
